If you know anyone that has set up their own wedding room block, they’ll be the first to tell you that it’s no task to take lightly. Communicating with hotels, negotiating costs, and reading the contracts can be very confusing and time-consuming. Here’s everything you need to know about setting up your own wedding room block!
Wedding dates, done right.
Do a quick search to see if there are any major conventions or events going on that will have hotels booked up. And make sure to set up your block early (around 8 months) to be sure you can get rooms for your guests.
Keep it together!
There’s nothing like having all of your close friends and family staying at the same place, reacquainting with old faces and making new friends. If you want to give guests hotel options at different price points, make sure the hotels aren’t too far from each other or the venue. Guests want to be a part of the wedding weekend fun, and a lot of that comes from staying near all the action!
Get comp’t courteously.
Hotels will sometimes offer a complimentary honeymoon or bridal suite if your guests book over 10 or 20 rooms (maybe some free bubbly too!). You’ll also want to make sure you’re not financially liable if your guests don’t fill up all the rooms. This is known as a “Courtesy Room Block”.
